    That's a beautiful and surprisingly affordable KO, I must say. I'm constantly tempted to get a second one, just for the hell of it. :)

    Looked over mine just over the weekend. Still pretty cool.

    BTW, I am planning to sell a few KOs. An oversized BW Neo Longrack and an Armada Jetfire (Not really oversized, but actually elongated middle and back end of the ship). I'll get a few pics up this week if anyone's interested.

    The only G1 Insecticons I'm missing is Kickback and Ransack, so the KOs fit in nicely.

    Alright. Here are 2 KO figures I'm giving everyone first chance before they go on ebay.

    1) Armada Jetfire.
    [​IMG]
    It may look oversized, but I think the main thing is that the mid-section and the back end (legs in robot mode) are just stretched out.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Some of the parts are modded, mainly the slots on his back end and that black piece on his chest doesn't fold down. No minicon ports or Commetor minicon (has landing gear in lieu of minicon). Shield piece is one molded piece. Doesn't connect to anything in robot mode. Goes under his feet in vehicle mode. Unfortunately, one of the holes has a broken off piece due to taking shield off. Still fits, but you still need to watch the plastic on this piece.
    [​IMG]

    One good thing is that he can still connect to voyager Armada Prime.
    [​IMG]
    Unfortunately, while transforming prime back, the post on Jetfire's gun broke off. I glued it back on, but still be wary of this plastic.
    Asking for $30 shipped in US

    2) Oversized BW Neo Longrack.
    [​IMG]

    Never had the original figure so I can't say if the gun mode works or not. Don't see any springs orgun posts. I have one opened, so this is an extra. I will be mailing the figure without the cardback to save on postage. Asking for $20 shipped.

    Please PM if interested.

    Got my first KOs in the mail earlier this week. Loving the Oversized PE-11, and Classics Cliffy aint bad either, though that is some of the hardest plastic I've seen. almost broke him trying to transform. thanks Paul!

    Will reserve these ones for your 'want list' if I can't find more. :) 

    I've seen those at toyfairs here, but never at market. Figured they were export only, now I know which country they're all going to. :) 

    Somewhere I saw these Oversized Insecticons painted in G1 colours, which turned out great.

    welcome

    These ones? They're harder to find now, still can 'want list' them.

    Not sure how quick I can place a new order, but please, if you can, that'd be great :)

    I think I have seen it somewhere, as well as this undersized one.

    will do.



    Opened pics of the Star Q Characters. (they don't transform)

    I put this guy alongside FE Optimus Prime, for scale. And personally, I like the way he scales with the deluxes. He's a bootleg of Arms Micron Optimus Prime:

    That's an awesome figure. Speaking of Arms Microns, I'm surprised they all haven't been KO'd yet.



    2 from today's haul,

    Animated Optimus Prime.
    and on a side note, Purple Giant Saver.

    just got 2 ko punch/counterpunch by chms from ebay at $30 a piece. one is perfect, other has multiple joint issues. shoulder hinge loose, one knee loose, feet loose (too bad not just one for a reference), and ball joints on hips make it hard to pose anything between "here i am just standing" and "quit bothering me! i'm taking a dump!" i guess it's just hit or miss.
    i really do like them anyway. so much better than paying upwards of $200 per.

    :mad  While I was doing something w/ my modem, I knocked something off what it sits on & it fell & hit my KO VV, which, in addition to knocking him to pieces, it broke the attachment point for the chest shield (only bit that broke, as far as I could tell). :banghead:  A friend, unhelpfully, pointed out "at least I'm getting the new Miracle Productions 60% Diecast, nigh fully poseable VV that's supposed to be coming out.

    Speaking of which, I learned at Anime St. Louis a couple weeks ago that that VV is no longer a licensed WEP product. The license expired 2 years ago. Considering it's all original engineering, I don't think it technically belongs in this thread. However, if anyone wants me to post pics if I do get it, ask.
